Having a mattress that lasts is important to all of us, but some brands are not as focused on it as they should be. That being said, these mattresses get good marks from reviewers on durability.

Bowling Ball & Density Tests
Bowling balls are useful to measure mattress firmness and support. These mattresses do well at providing even support throughout the mattress, which means they should cradle your hips and shoulders while aligning the spine.
Long lasting mattresses are wonderful, but not always simple to discover. Sadly, sleepers don't rate these mattresses well when it comes to durability. That said, some mattresses may last a significantly long time without issue, while other mattresses may break down faster. If you are bigger in body type, take a look at the reviews before purchasing.
I had great hopes for this bed; however, it is just too firm. Our former memory foam mattress lasted about 7 years, and my husband and I were beginning to have lower back pain because the bed had broken down and was too soft. Prior to that happening; however, we were very happy with the bed. Unfortunately, the manufacturer was no longer in business or we would have just purchased another.
After lots of research of reviews, etc., on the internet, I settled on the pacbed original 11." I was a little concerned about the only complaints being that the bed was too firm, but I thought we would try it and we could also buy a topper if it was too firm. First, the gel memory foam on the pacbed is different from our former bed, which conformed to your body. The gel memory foam simply depresses where you lay, more like a traditional spring form mattress, instead of enveloping your body. In addition, the three inches is not sufficient because you end up depressing through to the support foam, which is very hard. For reference, I am 5'7" and 145 lbs. Both my husband and I have had hip pain since purchasing this bed, and I can no longer sleep on my stomach. I have forced myself to sleep on my side with a pillow between my legs, which is the only way I can sleep comfortably and not wake up in pain.
We bought a 3" memory foam topper that was returnable (through another vendor) to get us through the 60 trial period, but it has made our bed ridiculously high (14") and while it does help relieve the pressure points, it just does not measure up to our old bed as far as comfort goes, and I still have issues with my arms falling asleep when I sleep on my stomach. Sigh. Unfortunately, this is going back when our trial is up in 30 days.
I also find it odd that I cannot figure out how to leave a review on their site. Perhaps they don't let you review until the full 60 days has past.
I'm giving this product 3 out of 5 for now. I suspect it will go down to a 2 unless it miraculously improves in comfort.
I researched the best I could online. SleepLikeTheDead.com appears to be, purports to be, a non-biased review organization. They rate this product higher than any other. And report 380+ customer reviews in part of their opinion.
"The ratings – based on 380+ consumer reviews gathered using an unbiased, accurate methodology – show how Bed In A Box mattresses compare to the average mattress."
Problem is, I can't find any customer reviews on the BedInaBox website. I can't find anywhere to leave a review on their website. I can't find any ling on the SleepLikeTheDead website to provide a review. So, I'll leave it here, with the other 5.
I purchased a twin for my son and a king fro myself. My son's mattress has no "off-gassing" smell. My mattress smells like it became moldy in the air vacuumed packaging, and is going on 5 days of a smell I can't sleep with. The smell has permeated my down comforter and I suspect I'm going to need to replace it.
My son says his mattress is fine and has no issues with comfort.
I have issues with my L5/S1. My previous mattress caused me discomfort. This mattress makes my back pain unbearable. I can't sleep through he night and have pain all day long. I am resorting to sleeping on the couch while I wait for the 60 day trial period to end.
The bed does not give in enough. My hips are raised while my L5 is forced down. It's basic physics. Even if you don't have L5 issues, this mattress will certainly encourage it. If I slept on my side, I'm sure it would not be an issue. I don't sleep on my side.
Not impressed. Not impressed with SleepLikeTheDead or BedInABox.
I can only hope that they don't expect me to ship this thing back to get the money back guarantee. I don't have the equipment to make it compact and vacuum packed that they do when they shipped it to me.
I LOVE this bed!!!!!! While shopping for a new mattress I wanted to try a non traditional online mattress retailor. I first tried CASPER beds and that bed was so uncomfortable I could only sllep on it for 4 nights before my wife made we change back to our spring mattress. This was our next bed and after a week we decided we would keep it for good. The customer service during ordering was great . I really liked the try in home no risk policy but dont worry you wont need to use it cause this bed is amazing. It is just as comfortable as the Temper-pedic beds I tried in stores. Give this bed a try whats the worst that could happen.
Arrived in a very manageably sized package, I didn't have any off gassing issues, and the bed is every bit as comfortable as I'd hoped so far.
Excellent..just what me and my wife needed
Not as comfortable as I imagined
We recently ordered the PacBed Original and a foundation, King, online. Ordering was straightforward and easy. Communication from Bed-In-A-Box was timely and done via email. Our mattress and foundation arrived within four business days. Set up for the foundation took about 20 minutes - directions were easy to follow and assembly was without hitch. Unboxing / unwrapping of the mattress was quick and again, easy, taking about 4 minutes. This king size mattress is a bit heavy and unweidly to move into place on the foundation but with two people it was done within 30 seconds. Total time to set up: 30 minutes! Note: There was no smell to the mattress.
The mattress feel is firm. You can barely feel another move, toss or turn, or get in or out of the bed. It did take a few days to adjust to the feel of the mattress and getting a quilted mattress cover helped in adding a bit of 'cushion'. The first few days my husband and I woke up stiff...though we believe that was due to staying in one position rather than tossing and turning or lack of support.
After two weeks sleeping on the mattress...we love it! It's comfortable. Neither of us toss or turn anymore. It provides quality support. When we need to replace our other mattresses, this will be the one we buy!
Bought this mattress to replace a pillow top mattress that was showing some wear and not very comfortable any more. Very pleased so far. Our son recommended bed in a box after he bought one for himself 2 years ago.
We recently purchased a 'Bed in the Box', everyone thought I was crazy, but the online research and reviews were great so we decided to give it a try - we are very happy with the mattress, the ordering process and delivery.
Great price. Quick delivery. Super comfortable ! My husband is up by 6:30 AM having never slept better!! Customer for like!
My husband and I love this bed. It is extremely comfortable and supportive, without being too soft. The warranty plus the 120-day money back guarantee are unheard of and excellent. I am so excited to have this bed for a long, long time!
Our 8 year old Tempurpedic no longer did the trick. Sore backs for both of us every morning. Our new mattress is great, easy to move and unpack, no off-gassing, and so comfortable.
Been sleeping on the mattress for several weeks now. I would call it firm. It's very comfortable for me as a stomach/back sleeper. I thought it might be too firm for my wife as she is a side sleeper, but she is happy too.
I'm not sure what I was expecting at first, my initial shock was that it was literally a bed in a box. From visiting with others about a foam mattress, we were told to 'break' in the bed by walking/jumping on it. Now the bed has settled quite nicely. We are sleeping much more comfortably and soundly. I truly wake up with few to zero aches. Overall, BedInABox was extremely easy to purchase from, quick to ship and so far a great product! I only hope it continues to get better through the years!
Very firm, very comfortable bed! No backaches! In fact, I like it better than our tempurpedic!
Comfortable, but a little firmer than I expected.
Have only slept on it 3 night due to being out of town. Seems good so far. It is an adjustment from sleeping on a inner spring mattress for 50 years. The mattress was a little firmer than I expected. I want to give it a good month before I can truly give it a thumbs up or thumbs down.
I bought this to replace my old mattress. It is a little firmer than I expected but overall nice mattress. I do sleep better.
initially my pacbed felt far firmer than my tranquility I had before, and its supposed to be the softer bed. after 1 week I think I like the bed but I really need more time to know for sure.
We've only had our mattress for 8 days, so it's a little difficult for me to give it a full 5 stars. I bought this mattress over my husband's mild objections, really worried it wouldn't work out. So far, it has. I'm sleeping much more comfortably than I have in a year. I'm a side sleeper and can only sleep on left side due to medical issues. I've developed arthritis in left hip. Happily, I'm not waking up in the night because of pain in my hip and feel rested and ache free in the morning. My husband is feeling more rested, too. The 2 things I'm not so happy about are the mattress seems concave. I actually feel like I could roll over to the middle when my husband gets in bed. I don't like that; what will happen in the future? Also, I can feel him move around. I was counting on this being motion free. I should have gotten a king and or a higher quality mattress. I've already recommended Bed in a Box to a friend.
My wife and I are sleeping much better since we got this bed. I haven't had any of the neck pains I used to have with our old bed. Setup was pretty easy and was accomplished without problem.
The bed came and was easy to assemble. We also bought the box spring which was fairly simple to assemble. The bed is firmer than I am used to
I explained that I was waking up every morning with back pain. For giving a company $1500, I would expect some kind of customer support. Instead I was told my mattress was past it's "try period" therefore there was nothing they could do. Many mattress companies offer a comfort guarantee. Not these guys. Regret my purchase 100%.
I've had back problems off and on for about 20 years. After 3 weeks on this mattress, I can honestly say that my back does not even enter my thoughts any more.View More Reviews
Treated us to a california king mattress and it is amazing its arguibly the most comfortable bed i've slept on even beating out many hotels. Its a perfect mix between firm and soft. It cradles but supports you. My quality of sleep is so much better than it had been in the past i sleep less than i previously had but i wake up significantly more alert and rested. Did i mention the price? This california king cost basically half what my grandmother just paid for a queen bed that "she got a really good deal on." After about two weeks sleeping on this bed i couldnt be more pleased. Thank you eve sleep!
Great service and an even better mattress. This is our second mattress in two years and I love them both. Such an easy way to buy a perfect bed.
Unfortunately, my Eve mattress caused me to awake to with back pain. I tried to give it a few months to see if my body would adjust, but it did not and the back pain persisted. I contacted Eve to initiate the return process, and was told that I had missed the closing of my 100 day trial period by a small number of days, and that nothing could be done to help me. More than anything, I am disappointed by the company's apparent lack of regard for customer service or customer experience. That a company would hold strictly to a policy at all costs, completely disregarding the fact that a product which they take pride in was causing a customer physical pain and discomfort is extremely disappointing to me. I have purchased goods from many of other companies that gladly made exceptions to policies on their paper to ensure that customer experience and satisfaction was the #1 priority. It appears sadly that at Eve, the number one priority is profit alone, at the expense of disappointed customers. You may find the mattress comfortable personally, but even if you did, I could not recommend Eve. There are other comfortable mattresses out there, backed by companies with higher regard for customer service and satisfaction that I would encourage you to direct your money towards instead.
This mattress was the best one i ever had, well to be more exact, it is the first time i ever bought a mattress online. Once i lay on the bed, i fall asleep easily. The comfort of the bed is really good. I also started recommending my friends and family members to get one.
It is both soft enough and firm enough, hard to describe. That makes me want to go to bed early. I am a side and back sleeper with hip problems and I have not had any pain yet. It does sleep a little warm and I’ve had to lighten my covers a bit but that’s the only issue I’ve had. Very pleased! Highly recommended.
Very comfortable. I am now waking up refreshed and well-rested. I am extremely pleased and would highly recommend this mattress.
This is th third purchase I've made, twice in the UK last year and having moved to Canada earlier this year a new queen size mattress. I went to the website, entered details etc and everything went through as expected....except...when I checked my bank account and saw I had been charged in American dollars and paid a whack in exchange. Not what I was expecting as there was nothing saying that the charges would be in American dollars. Otherwise everything was as expected. Please show this information somewhere on the payments page so Canadian customers are aware they will pay in American dollars.
Love this mattress.
My wife and I are really enjoying amazing sleep again thanks to the eve bed. We love it!
We could not be happier with the the mattress. Shipping and set up were quick and easy. Most importantly, we are sleeping better than we have in a long time. We love the balance of supportiveness and softness it provides.
After doing some research I decided to purchase an Eve mattress. Firm and solid shape holding even sitting on the side of the bed in the morning. Its not too firm or to soft. I have been sleeping well. Better than the sleep number bed I had that the Eve replaced. Every persons firm or soft is subjective. I am 176 lbs and my girlfriend is 114 lbs. We both like the mattress. Mattress was packaged well and easy to set up. I think it was totally worth what we paid for it.
This bed is so comfortable. I recently took off the cover to wash it and I realized it's even more comfy without it but after putting it back on the cover is super tight a restricts it a bit. But over all this still is one of the most comfortable beds I've ever owned or layed on.
My previous review was not so hot because FedEx was delayed repeatedly with delivery... Shame on them. We've been on this mattress for a little over 4 weeks now, and what a difference! I can sleep anywhere, and thought I was ok, my girlfriend is more like the "princess and the pea" and notices everything. With this mattress we both notice that we sleep well, wake up feeling great and that we look forward to going to sleep at night. We will see how things are six months from now, but seriously happy at this time
Fantastic- easy to unpackage and very comfortable :)
I was sleeping on a hybrid mattress of spring and foam before. It was way too soft and caused a lot of back pain. I did a lot of research before I finally decided to purchase the Eve mattress and I couldn’t be happier. The mattress is a little firm but that’s what I like about it. It doesn’t feel like the mattress is wrapping me up, I feel like I’m on top of it. The value aspect of the mattress is the best I’ve seen of any of the online mattresses. Overall, A+++
The process for selecting and shipping the mattress was painless, as was the setup in home. I would say I find the mattress to be a bit softer than I'd prefer, and I tend to prefer pillowtop mattresses, so make sure you like memory foam before purchasing. Still 4 stars so obviously I'm not dissatisfied, but just a word of warning if you're picky.
So soft yet firm best sleep ever! Now I look forward to bedtime
I bought the queen mattress 8 months ago and have never woken with a sore joint in my body since. I sleep better than I ever have. I wanted to get the pillows for a while but was put off on the price. I ordered 2, and after only 5 nights I took all my old pillows to the garbage! Amazing just like the mattress. Best purchases I’ve made in my life.
I had doubts when I ordered, I was relieved there was a 100-night money back free return. I am not returning it. I haven't slept this well in 12 years. I love my eve. I am so pleased that the first mail order mattress I tried was the one. I was prepared to go through as many as it would take. Consumer Reports told me which to try, I made a list but the selling point for me was the eve is the most reasonably priced, the surprise was how easy it was to unpack, setup and immediately sleep in luxury.
Keep me cool and very supportive. No complaint after a week so far.
most comfortable mattress i have ever owned and I’m 65. i have back problems and this foam mattress gives me so much relief and i wake up well rested.
I've been sleeping like a champ. Next on the list are a couple of Eve pillows, then I'll be set.
Great mattress. Was hesitant to buy one because I've been looking at other mattress, but boy am I glad I got this mattress. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for an affordable mattres that feels like a super expensive one. Kudos eve, kudos
I dinged you one star for no foundation for the bed available from your website. I purchased a wood slatted one from Amazon. I would like to have the accessories available that are in the U.K. The smell problem that I read about just doesn't exist for me or my wife. I smell absolutely nothing. No sinking in. No overheating. Not too soft and not to hard. You guys nailed it! Now if this thing actually lasts ten years...
Mattress was quickly delivered to NYC; tracking the delivery was effortless. Mattress is true to the dimensions listed online. I sleep better and deeper; my muscles are more relaxed as well. Love my Eve mattress.
